This webinar introduces the physics of Dynamic Line Rating (DLR), and calculation methods based on CIGRE and IEEE standards. Various approaches are discussed: direct measurement technologies (sensors) as well as weather model-based simulations. We describe applications implemented by grid operators for some years already. These illustrate how Dynamic Line Rating data have been integrated into grid operators’ tools and processes, in particular how forecasts are used. Furthermore, some analytics will be shared that demonstrate the benefits of Dynamic Line Rating for reducing OPEX and CAPEX. This includes examples on increasing cross-border trading, reducing investment on new line infrastructure and reducing congestions, which helps to make decisions on reinforcement and investment.
